Sprucing Up For the Holidays!

Hey Neighbors!

I know if your home is anything like mine lately, things are beginning to speed up a bit.  The children are getting more excited and we are beginning to prepare for the holidays.  We are actually having Thanksgiving together with some friends.  We are all pitching in.  But...

Not only are we preparing, we are changing bedrooms around and a roof is being added to our back deck.  Not to mention we have company right now.  And of course, we are trying to spruce up a bit.  I purchased some decorations for out front yard.

While changing bedrooms we have moved the younger girls into a room that used to be the study.  Now, the only problem is we need to put up some form of curtain to block off the one end of there room.  We have been looking at a variety of curtains, trying to decide if we want them all the way to the floor or most of the way to the floor.  Do we want a light weight curtain or a heavier light-blocking curtain?  Of course my one daughter would love pink or purple, but I really don't see that happening, especially since this will be just off the kitchen!  I really don't thin pink or purple will match my red and brown kitchen.

Then of course we are changing the dining room around, just a little.  The girls are going to do a little extra decorating hanging a couple fall wreaths, pictures and of course placing some great smelling candles around the room!  We just have to have some cinnamon scented and some that smell like fresh baked pies!

We will be sprucing up the deck a little when it is finished with some of the old time looking lanterns, a little wheelbarrow planter and a few other small planters.  We will have our carpet in place, along with our patio furniture.  The one thing I really like is they are placing two skylights and two ceiling fans in!  Gotta love it!  I will do a post with pictures when it is all completed.

If you have time, take a minute and leave a comment telling us something you are doing to spruce up for the holidays.  Replacing furniture, painting, adding some fall or winter decor.  Share with us here At the Fence!

Be sure during all your holiday hustle and bustle, decorating and buying, to make sure you spend time with your family.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

From There is nothing more fulfilling than travelling the world and visiting new and exciting places. If you’re a fan of travel , then you might have thought about moving abroad at some point.
